to the debt of the united states, we have all sorts of day-to-day obligations that the united states incurs to pay the electric bill, to pay federal employees salaries to pay social security benefits. those are not debts to which the debt ceiling applies. and the idea is to recognize if we don't have enough money to pay those day-to-day obligations that the federal government should issue ious to people. it would say we're very sorry, yes, we owe you money, can't pay you now, when we can, we will. and then the fun part of the idea is that instead of the treasury trying to raise money through a back door mechanism like the platinum coin people would take these ious and tell them at a small discount, and that gets cash to most people's hands and at the same time it is less of a constitutional front to the congress. >> jennifer: so the notion would be that the -- so everybody who is a contractor with the government who is owed some money would be given some kind of paper. they could take that paper to the bank, and the bank would somehow buy it on the assumption that the

america? >> well one of the things that this shows is that ignorance is dangerous. the united states ignored afghanistan in the 1990s and we saw what came out of that. we have been ignoring this area of africa for a long time even though morocco has been saying for many years that radical islamic groups have been growing for a while. perhaps the most prominent of them this one. he is someone who emerges in 2002, and takes 18 germans and french backpackers hostage. he gets almost $20 million as a result. he builds up a massive force from that. and through hostage taking robberies and associations with drug runners, they help guide many of the drugs ultimately boun for europe, they are getting paid fees to do that, so this group has grown through money and through violence, and they are very good at it. >> richard, aren't you overstating it though by saying we have ignored that part of the world? just yesterday for the first time in a while recognized the government of somlia. >> egypt is as far away from molly -- responsible military action is based this the he

uniteing quality, innovation. >> what are you wearing? what's on your head? >> the google glass. it's a little project i've been looking at. it's one of the main focuses now that i shift doing more r & d. the idea is you want to be free to experience the world without fussing with a phone. you may not have noticed but i took a picture of you and you're making eye contact with me. if i whipped out the phone, it would be very different. >> how do i know you're not making that up? i literally can see the image that you photographed? does it reflect on--let's take a look. what is it? do you have to push anything? what did you do to make that work? >> i'm operating it backwards. it's not something--don't touch the pad on the side. >> gavin: there it is. >> that's somebody's finger, let me push the money. >> gavin: that's me, and you zoom right in. amazing. so this is something you guys have been working on at google for how long? >> this has been, you know, two or three years now but i've been much more involved just in the past year. >> gavin: and where did it come from? is this part of
can lift my sags spirits, vincent dimarco is the national coordinator for the "faiths united to prevent gun violence." he comes to us from baltimore tonight. thank you for joining us in "the war room." >> thanks for having me. >> jennifer: when and how did your organization get it's start? >> faiths uniteed to prevent gun violence started in 2010. when faith leaders successfully worked against toe tobacco to enact life-saving fda legislation. we thought we could use that same authority same power to reduce gun violence in america. that's when we came together. since then over 40 national faith groups have come to together representing tens of millions of americans to say it's time to reduce gun violence in america and there are ways to do it. faiths united to prevent gun violence is here because there are gun violence protection measures that work and have been proven to work. >> jennifer: tell us what the specifics are about the measures that you're proposing. >> the specific measures that we're proposing, a letter from faith leaders sent to president obama and congress said
of the united nations were false. >> john: that's mccain still trying to win the respect of his own party. they were even more incensed over rice's alleged efforts to mislead the american public during an election year, no less to no apparent logical reason. >> again, we were misled there was supposedly protest and then something sprang out of that. an all the sprang out of that. that was easily ascertainable. that was not the fact and the american people could have known that for days. >> with all due respect the fact is we had four dead americans. whether it was because of a protest or because guys out for a walk and they decided to go kill some americans. what difference at this point does it make? it is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent from ever happening again senator. >> john: illinois senator dick durbin was more direct in defense of ambassador rice and brought up a misleading comment that many would like to perfect. >> i think some of the criticism heaped on her was unfair. and did not reflect the fact that she was reporting the best informat
the reforms we've seen so far? >> well, i think that labor is united. we all support legalization and a path to citizenship for undocumented workers. for one very simple reason. we believe that taking these 11 million people and legalizing them and giving them the same rights, the same obligations the same responsibilities as any other american will help lift wages for everybody because they will not be at the mercy of employers who tend to exploit them and because of their status. so i think that this is a good thing for workers and besides you know i think that anybody that's working here should have the same rights. there should not be anything like a second class american worker in this country. >> john: i agree with you on that one. but let me ask since you were there today for the president's speech do you anticipate any pushback from conservative latinos over the president's reported same-sex marriage proposals as part of this reform bill? >> i don't think so because at the end of the day listen, we are saying everyone should have an opportunity to legalize their status. and if we sta
. >> stephanie: yep. >> we started to stop the trafficking of weapons from the united states to mexico. >> stephanie: right. >> when i was in homeland security, you couldn't believe the resistance of looking into weapons that were leaving the united states and going into mexico. now why would we want -- why would we want to stop -- not want to stop that trafficking whether it was drugs or -- or weaponry into mexico, since we have stomped it down to the ground as much as we could anyway. >> stephanie: and look at how new york got done on gun control. how quickly and in a bipartisan way. >> you have got to do the work beforehand. cuomo wouldn't have brought it up -- he didn't bring it up the legislature brought it up, but he approved it. in congress we kind of work like backwards many times. we go from the top and then it comes down to the members, and that's not the way to do it. we do that on that lot of subjects. i think the president has done the right thing to talk to those who were first affected. >> stephanie: yeah. >> what the hell did they do wrong? >> yea
's required of being the president of the united states, i can be in bed by 9:30. >> obama had an afterparty at the white house. he was up until 4:00 a.m.! >> you go. >> i do two minute of news at the top of the hour and i stay up late. >> what am i saying exactly? >> hal: 4:00 a.m. call against a guy who's probably still awake. how can you make the point that he'll groggily answer the phone. p.s., the two guys we ran if you look at mccain, imagine calling that man at 4:00 in the morning and asking him anything. seriously! ehh? who is this? click. >> get off my lawn. >> mr. president mr. president are you awake? we have an emergency. troops -- there is a nuclear submarine. >> i can't hear you. my goiter got in the way. >> hal: then mitt romney, if you take that picture of him pumping gas on the way to disneyland as a sign of how he handles stress -- >> oh, boy! >> he turns into a hobo. >> hal: hobo producers activate. form of a confused staggering man on the train. let's actually -- this is interesting, too. because while the inauguration was going -- let's go to sean in chicago. sean in chi
the united states of america less safe because the number of enemies we were creating. >> john: i gotta say in the footage we just showed from you making the film, you are being greeted warmly. it is worth remembering that pakistan is still officially a u.s. ally. is there still a warmth among the people there toward our country or are you disturbed by a growing hostility by the pakistani people? >> well, the people i met with, and again, you know, one doesn't want to overgeneralize, the people i met with in the investigation work for the film could not have been more gracious. these were people -- you know, a man held up a picture of his 65, 70-year-old mother. he said look, she was killed by a drone. she's not a terrorist. he and his children, her grandchildren, couldn't have been friendlier. couldn't have been more helpful. and wanted to get the word to the united states that they were not doing anything to justify our assassinating them and their relatives. so they seem to be able to separate at this point the united states policy from members and people of the united states of america.
